Inaugural Scholars’ Day Celebrates PhD Students, Post-Docs
Columbia Nursing held its first-ever Scholars’ Day on September 12, 2022, organized by the Office of Scholarship and Research to spotlight the school’s PhD candidates and post-doctoral fellows and showcase their work.
Seven post-docs and 11 PhD students presented their research in a morning poster session. Each stood by their poster and spoke to three faculty reviewers about the project. Faculty judged the 18 posters presented on scientific content and quality and oral and visual presentation.
Presenters agreed that the event was a wonderful opportunity to meet in person and share their research and ideas with peers and faculty. Four scholars were honored at a closing reception:
- Best PhD Student Poster: Katherine South - The Relationship Between Post-transfer Outcomes and Continuity of Recommended Care During Healthcare Transition in Cystic Fibrosis
- Best Postdoc Fellow Poster: Suzanne Courtwright, PhD - Do Positive Health Assets Influence Engagement with Children’s Mental Health Systems in Adolescents with Chronic Conditions?
- Best Poster Visualization: Jung "Chloe" Kang - The Impact of Nursing Home Infection Preventionists’ Education and Training on Resident COVID 19 Deaths
- Best Oral Presentation: Sarah Leonard - Weight Discrimination and Mental and Emotional Health in Sexual and Gender Minority Individuals: A Scoping Review
Winners received framed certificates and a gift card of $50 (Best Oral Presentation and Best Visualization) or $100 (Best PhD Student poster and Best Postdoc Poster).
